Endicott $10 million downtown revitalization initiative awards

Endicott is rolling into the new year with momentum.

Two times soon after netting around $6 million in Restore New York awards, Gov. Kathy Hochul declared yet another $10 million is on the way to the Broome County village.

Hochul on Thursday unveiled a checklist of the 8 tasks chosen to share in Endicott’s $10 million Downtown Revitalization Initiative Award.

“My administration is committed to revitalizing New York’s downtowns and ensuring businesses have the assets needed to prosper in their regional communities,” Hochul stated. “These jobs will uplift the community financial system of Endicott while expanding group companies and cultural facilities that will convey the community together and spur economic development for generations to appear.”

The eight tasks drop under a few objectives — enhancing walkability and connectivity, maximizing housing and employment possibilities, and growing group solutions and cultural features. Three awards eclipsed $1 million: $3.1 million to enhance downtown connectivity, $3.1 million to redevelop the vacant Kmart plaza into a distribution heart for Inexperienced Mountain Electric Offer, and $1.1 million to revitalize the Southern Tier Neighborhood Centre. Just less than $1 million was earmarked to renovate 32-36 Washington Ave. for mixed use, such as a new restaurant.

The initiatives are located inside of 4 places of downtown Endicott — the Downtown Main, the Huron Campus, Minimal Italy, and the Western gateway. The DRI jobs aims to reinforce connectivity concerning downtown and surrounding neighborhoods.

“We have been operating a extensive time to rejuvenate the village through redevelopment, renovation and revitalization,” reported Endicott Mayor Linda Jackson. “The assignments incorporated in this award will assist our aims to create employment, guidance housing advancement, and make our village far more inviting with new storefronts, lights and streetscapes. This DRI grant will be a good ‘shot in the arm’ for our forthcoming foreseeable future.”
